Truro BID is Successfully Renewed for a Fourth Term 2022 - 2027

We're delighted that City Centre businesses voted in favour of Truro Business Improvement District (BID) for a fourth term. Of those businesses who voted in the postal ballot, 85% voted yes to the renewing Truro BID. As well as the 'yes' vote, Truro BID met the second test achieving 87% of the total rateable value of all the votes cast. This will see more than £1.6 million invested on projects and services over a five-year period.

The new term will begin on the 1st of October 2022 and will generate around £322,000 per year to deliver the Truro BIDS's new Business Plan. A dedicated committee of local business owners and managers, will be responsible for the direction of Truro BID's fourth term to ensure the Business Plan is delivered accordingly. For details about the renewal, including the new Fourth Term Business Plan see our dedicated webpage.
